US-289657 - Bridgeport


US-289657 sent by "hipparchus"

This was my first card from California. This one shows the Mono County Courthouse located in Bridgeport.

"A courthouse (sometimes spelled court house) is a building that is home to a local court of law and often the regional county government as well, although this is not the case in some larger cities. The term is common in North America. In most other English speaking countries, buildings which house courts of law are simply called "courts" or "court buildings". In most of Continental Europe and former non-English speaking European colonies, the equivalent term is a palace of justice" In: Wikipedia

"Bridgeport is a census-designated place that is the county seat of Mono County, California. It lies at an elevation of 6463 feet (1970 m) in the middle of the Bridgeport Valley. Bridgeport is located at the intersection of highways US 395 and State Route 182. The population was 575 at the 2010 census." In: Wikipedia
